Things To Do

The Lancaster Manor is a very special place!

The Lancaster Manor is a very special place! A sweet throwback in time that fills the senses with just what you need in an escape from all the daily stresses of life! Connie and John the awesome Inn Keepers treated us like royalty. My husband and I were the first couple to have the pleasure of staying in the Rose Room. A very spacious and romantic ambiance. Claw foot tub and comfy King size bed. You can pull the shades and sleep in or if you’re early risers like, you don’t mind the morning sun waking you. We truly enjoyed our leisurely yummy breakfast, where no detail was left out. I would highly recommend the pecan waffle in the shape of TX., Paul enjoyed an omelette, bacon and toast and homemade preserves. Treat yourself! Would love to go back!!

John and Connie took care of every detail from the moment we arrived

My husband and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary at The Lancaster Manor.  John and Connie took care of every detail from the moment we arrived to the minute we left. We enjoyed a homemade private dinner with bbq ribs with meat falling off the bone, the sauce was delcious, green beans cooked with mushrooms and seasoned roasted potatoes. We finished off with coffee and an amazing banana cheesecake. We enjoyed some quiet relaxing time by the gorgeous pool. Before you leave, be sure to buy the homemade banana nut bread and jam. I highly recommend The Lancaster Manor and look forward to going back soon.

It’s like stepping back in time but with all the amenities

If you love those “they don’t make them like they used to” homes, then you need to come here! It’s like stepping back in time but with all the amenities. We stayed in the Rose room which had a huge porcelain claw-footed bathtub that seems to call your name as soon as you see it! The breakfast is AMAZING!! I think I’ll be getting Eggs Benedict with avocado EVERY time! And did I mention the homemade Banana Bread that was waiting for us in our room?! We were even able to take a whole loaf home!  Yum! Yum! Yum to EVERYTHING!! 😋😋😋 Don’t forget your swimsuits! We may be in Texas but this pool is shaded most of the day and is truly refreshing!
